Pros: free updates on my cpr certification

A typical day at work I would come in and set up all the computers so that the users can come in and use them for various reasons. I learned that it is many rules and regulations that come with the handling of one's vital information and rules have to be obeyed. Our management team is one that cares for their workers with various check up and keeping – more... us updated on many activities. The co-workers are all close to each other and the company's mission. The hardest part of the problem is not being able to fulfill someone's individual need. The part that I enjoy the most is the satisfaction that I get when I help someone to receiving a scholarship or getting a job is the best part of my job. – less

Pros: teamwork, moral, and training/education.
Cons: pay, working conditions vary but overall still good, respect comes with job most of the time, and the overall job itself!
A typical day a work is knowing that you come to a place where the employees focus on personal development (education and classes that help them better themselves as a Deputy).

Management of course cared a lot for not only the staff but making sure that the – more... inmates who were unruly were given the necessary punishment. The hardest part of the job for me was transferring to another department because of the pay. The most enjoying part of the job for me was training. – less
